minister netanyahu at the u.n. yesterday dramatically laying down his red line for stopping iran's program. one day later it exploded on twitter with the jury still out whether the prop was pure genius or a cheap stunt? a ari fleischer said it was one of the best uses of a chart identify seen. is the world listening? sam stein, and jerusalem based journalist tweeted get ready for 10,000 tweets about the absurd bomb chart. few new more than ambassador dennis ross. he served as the point man in the middle east process for george h.w. bush and bill clinton. he's a political analyst for msnbc. we're glad to have you, ambassador ross. we've seen never a speech like this at the u.n. by such a key, prominent leader. here's what tom brokaw said with it on "the daily rundown." >> think what they would say if president obama did something like or george w. bush or if mitt romney had made a speech and held up that kind of bomb and drew the line across it. it kind of boggles the mind, quite frankly. >> ambassador, what if this had been an american president doing something like this? >> well, i think
action. at the u.n. he used a prop to drive home his point. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: while some have accused the prime minister of pressuring the president to help gop nominee mitt romney, mr. netanyahu has said his actions are not tied to the u.s. political calendar. the white house downplays any friction between the two leaders and brushes aside criticism that there was no face-to-face meeting. >> the president has met with and spent time on the phone with prime minister netanyahu more than with any leader since he took office. and that is reflective of the importance of and the closeness of the relationship between the united states and israel. >> reporter: the white house would not say if the two leaders talked about the so-called red line, which of course is a key issue. and no specifics on how they will stop iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. but they did agree to "continue their regular consultations on this issue." wolf. >> dan lothian reporting from the whi
minister of israel literally drew a red line for iran's nuclear program today as he addressed the u.n. general assembly. see him there? and he paused for effect. now, look at that rather crudely drawn bomb. this was no colin powell moment. there was a purposefully simple diagram, kind of like a cartoon, designed to make what benjamin netanyahu believes is a very serious, but simple point. >> by next spring at most, by next summer, at current enrichment rates, they will be finished with medium enrichment and move on to the final stage. from there, it's only a few months, possibly a few weeks, before they get enough enriched uranium for the fist bomb. >> but in his speech this week, president obama did not give any such timeline. he certainly didn't draw a red line. >> so let me be clear, america warrants to revolve this issue through diplomacy and we believe there is still time and space to do so. but that time is not unlimited. >> netanyahu thanked the president for tough sanctions, but was clear to say those sanctions have not impacted the country's nuclear program, but did he give a
especially at places like the u.n., nothing of substance gets done. i actually prefer that our president is on the phone with prime minister netanyahu today. he was on the phone for an hour last week. he has been on the phone with other leaders from the middle east constantly throughout all of the chaos that is happening. that is much more important from a substantive standpoint than from any sort of perception standpoint of who he met or who he didn't meet, and we also saw the prime minister walk back his criticism. >> we got to leave it there. anna, maria, good to see you both. >> thanks so much. >> it would be great if he were meeting with the ladies of "the view" instead of meeting with netanyahu. >> he -- >> that's my personal preference. >> to meet with five powerful women. hey, you know, that may sway some votes. >> we have to take a quick break. [ voice of dennis ] ...safe driving bonus check? every six months without an accident, allstate sends a check. ok. [ voice of dennis ] silence. are you in good hands? [ voice of dennis ] silence. you see us, at the start of the day. on th
ahmadinejad has come to the u.n. general assembly and every time he's caused controversy, making accusations. veiled threats. this year was different. it was mostly platitudes about world peace but he had plenty of sharp comments in a series of interviews. his conversation with me was his final one. perhaps his final one on the world stage. you see, iran's election law says he can't run again and elections are set for 2013. so i asked him about israeli strikes and obama's warnings. you've indicated that you think that the israeli prime minister's threats toward iran are ones you don't take very seriously, but i was wondering how seriously you take the rhetoric of the president of the united states. president obama said at the united nations that he was determined to prevent iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. do you regard that as a bluff? >> translator: you set forth two or three questions here. i have never used the word "bluff." when we say we do not take it seriously, we mean that it impacts -- it does not impact our policies in the slightest. iran is a vast country, is a great country.
, to resign as u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and yesterday, here's the response as they try and move forward and turn the majpage. congressman paul ryan and paul mccain. take a look at this approach. >> the response was slow. it was confused. it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know that it was a planned terrorist attack. if this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself. the problem is it's part of a bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes on our tv screens. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey, that al qaeda is on the wane, that everything's fine in the middle east. >> you think it's political? >> i think there are certain political overtones. how else could you trot out our u.n. ambassador to say it was spontaneous? >> maybe it was. >> five days later? that doesn't pass the smell test. it was ever ignorance or willful intelligence. >> whether you agree with him or not, senator mccain has the credibili
.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice for what he says was misleading comments about the attacks in libya. yes, this issue has become political, but it is more than that because even if u.s. intelligence didn't know the specific details of an impending attack, here's what they and we do know. three days before the attack, senior u.s. embassy officials were warned by the libyan militia connected to the government, they couldn't secure benghazi. the british ambassador was attacked in june and of course, the attack happened on september 11th and once again, once the attack happened, u.s. intelligence knew within 24 hours that it was linked to al-qaeda. also, "the daily beast" eli lake reports they even knew the location of at least one of the attackers. eli is with me tonight on what u.s. intelligence knew in the immediate aftermath. also with us is jeff porter, an adviser on political and security risks and jeffrey cousins. great to see you. and eli, let me start with you. you have had so much of the first reporting on this and now, you have some more information on when intelligence intercepted

iran at the u.n. today. prime minister benjamin netanyahu urging the world to draw a red line to stop iran from building a nuclear bomb. >> where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. before, before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> meanwhile, palestinian president mahmoud abbas accuses israel of what it calls ethnic cleansing. >> it is a campaign of ethnic cleansing, ask the palestinian people. >> tony blair worked out of number 10 downing street into what may be the toughest job, middle east quartet representative. he joins me now. thank you, mr. blair. it's been a big week with everything you're involved with now in the middle east. start with benjamin netanyahu's speech. very, very hard about iran, very clear and i will play a little clip in a moment of this bomb chart he produced. the big question i guess is -- two big questions. do you believe that israel is genuinely planning to do some kind of preemptive strike based on the rhetoric we're now hearing, and if they do, what should the reaction be parti

the red line he wants for iran to end its nuclear program. iran's ambassador to the u.n. says he won't dignify it with a response. except to deny iran is trying to make a nuclear bomb. but president obama did respond. he and netanyahu spoke today over the telephone. cnn foreign affairs correspondent jill dougherty joining us from new york. jill, do we know what the president, president obama said to israeli prime minister? >> reporter: well, we do, fred. in fact, they issued this statement and you have to, as you're reading it, say, well, they certainly pulled that back on track because after all, you know, the president didn't meet one personally with the prime minister, and that was interpreted of course as a very cold shoulder. there was worry, though, that this was being exploited as, you know, criticism especially in this campaign as being a rift between the united states, and i should say at least present between president obama and israel so they had this telephone call. i should mention also that mitt romney also had a telephone call with prime minister netanyahu, but the whi

. as you talk about it, last week at his speech to the u.n. general assembly, the president went through a list of what he considered to be his big victories, osama bin laden being dead was one and ending the war in iraq was another one. september was the deadliest in terms of attack since august of 2010, which is pretty shocking since the war is technically over. on top of that reuters has some footage that we have for you of literally pictures of the iotolla from iran. pictures all over iraq now as iran is trying to gain and perhaps succeeding at gaining more and more power in iraq. this is a big question that obviously is going to be a problem for whatever president's next but not something president obama wants to be talking about right now. >> with iran obviously they're having sort of its own singular way inserting itself in the elections. we heard from ahmadinejad last week and heard from netanyahu literally drawing that red line on the metaphor kal bomb. >> right. >> could we hear from iran between now and say november 6th? >> well, this is pretty amazing. obviously when prime mi
